Halotron products are halocarbon-based clean fire extinguishing agents with a wide variety of commercial, industrial, maritime and military applications. They are discharged either as a rapidly evaporating liquid (Halotron I) or gas (Halotron II) that leaves no residue. This minimizes or eliminates the potential damage to valuable assets like electronic equipment, machinery, motors and construction materials that is typical of conventional dry chemical–based extinguishing agents. Halotron products are environmentally acceptable under the U.S. EPA’s SNAP program as well as other regulatory programs, and are sold throughout the world.
Halotron I is designed for streaming application in handheld fire extinguishers, certain local application systems, and on a limited basis in total flooding applications.
Halotron II is a total flooding clean agent designed for normally unoccupied spaces.
Halotron II is a clean total flooding agent based on HFC-134a (CH2FCF3), HFC-125 (CHF2CF3) and carbon dioxide (CO2). It replaces halon 1301 with great effectiveness in certain applications. It is primarily distributed in Sweden and Finland, but is also approved under the U.S. EPA SNAP program, subject to usage limitations.
